Rose Redman Announced As a Upper School Principal

Dear BCA Community,

I am delighted to announce that BCA has hired Rose Maria Redman to serve as our next upper school principal beginning July 1, 2022. BCA’s search committee unanimously and wholeheartedly selected Mrs. Redman from a strong field of candidates as the individual most qualified by virtue of her depth of experience, dedication to excellent, faith-based education, and her obvious care for students to lead BCA’s upper school to its next level of maturity and flourishing.

Mrs. Redman comes to Bradford Christian Academy with a deep well of experience as a teacher and as a school leader at both Presentation of Mary Academy in Methuen and most recently at Malden Catholic High School. Throughout her thirty-year tenure at Presentation of Mary, Mrs. Redman served consecutively as English teacher, Assistant Principal, Principal, and Head of School overseeing all day-to-day operations of the school. While at Malden Catholic, Mrs. Redman successfully led the school through the pandemic and accomplished the key strategic goal of aligning the curriculum and overall experiences of the school’s Boys and Girls Divisions.

As Mrs. Redman prepares to assume her responsibilities at BCA, she tells our school community, “Over the years I have seen such tremendous growth at Bradford Christian Academy, and I am so excited to build on the foundation that has been set by all of you. I am looking forward to meeting the faculty, staff, and students and to begin this new journey.”

Mrs. Redman will be at Bradford Christian Academy to meet teachers on April 27th at 3:15. She will be introduced to the parent community at our Celebration of Teacher and Learning on April 30th from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. at our Upper School Campus, 360 Merrimack Street, Entry K, Lawrence, MA 01843. Please RSVP online at:

For my part, I look forward to a very productive, collaborative working relationship with Mrs. Redman. As we have gotten to know one another as colleagues over the past several years, it became clear that we share a common vision for what high-quality, faith-based education at its best can do in the lives of students today and throughout their futures. I look forward with great optimism to Mrs. Redman’s leadership of our upper school community. Please join me in giving a warm welcome to Mrs. Redman!

Blessings and Happy Easter!
